Electronic music has been on the rise for a few years now and there are many new producers and creators that are attempting to make a name for themselves in the music scene. Among them is Ihan, a DJ, producer, and remixer, from Algeria who has been rapidly gaining a platform for his music. His tracks tend to blend different elements of electronic music with more traditional elements of Arabic music. The result is strong beats with riffs that add dimension to the songs that he is producing. This unique aspect of his music, and his ability to hold on to his culture and even to make Algerian music more widely available to the world, sets him apart from many other electronic music producers.
His latest musical project ”El Basma”, which translated from Arabic means the touch, is currently available to stream and it has since its release amassed 200K views. The song was supported and promoted by Blackout.TV on youtube. It was also released on multiple streaming platforms where it has garnered much success and millions of streams. This project is part of Ihan’s general approach to music where he mixes Algerian and Rai music and remixes it to include electronic dance music elements. These elements include beats, snares, and progression that modernize the traditional tracks while also retaining part of their original culture.
